  Windows (all) Tip -  Disable Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool Heartbeat Telemetry   

If you have the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool installed on your machine, either by having installed it manually or because it shipped with Windows, you may have noticed already that it is sending out so called Heartbeat Reports after certain scans.

These reports are not linked to any of the major telemetry services or tasks that you may or may not have disabled on your machine.

On Windows 10, the Heartbeat report gets sent out to Microsoft even if you have disabled the Customer Experience Program and the majority of other telemetry related services or tasks, and made sure to set all privacy related settings to maximum privacy.
